  Welcome mimicRobots!
Posted by: Administrator - 2018-05-26, 09:55 PM - Forum: News and Announcements - No Replies

Hi All,

I'd like to welcome mimicRobots to our forums! They are finishing up a small but successful kickstarter campaign for their fun and educational trainable robot arm.

As I mention in another post, I had spoken with the proprietor of mimicRobots, Brett several times at the Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire. When I saw the kickstarter, I got in touch with him, and mentioned the Fabric8r.com forums. It turned out that mimicRobots did not have a plan for forums yet, so I offered up some space here for them.

Brett has a good deal of arduino experience, and we look forward to him popping in to our existing forums as well to lend his advice.

mimicRobots now has a dedicated section on the site, currently with three forums - General Discussion, Educator's Corner, and the Project Showcase.

Please join me in welcoming mimicRobots, and hopefully a number of their kickstarter backers soon as well.

I'm trilled fabric8r.com has decided to host our support forum. Welcome one and all. Here you'll find all the latest news, projects, tips and upcoming releases for all the mimic robots. Rememeber, there's still 4 days left to snag mimicArm on Kickstarter, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as well.

You may know that fabric8r.com is currently based in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. A maker from this area is running a kickstarter project for his educational robots. I've enjoyed talking with him several times at the local mini maker faire.

The robots are not designed for heavy workloads - instead, they are weak for safety. The underlying custom electronics though should support stronger motors if needed (this is what I recall from talking to him - things may have changed, or I might not remember correctly).

Anyway, if you're in Cincinnati, take a chance to support a local, and otherwise check out the offerings and see if they suit you.

Here's the link:

Hi All,

I am making progress in my search for useful, inexpensive 3D modeling softwares, especially those that can work with Linux.

I'll post more soon, but I wanted to mention that I got my windows box working, and one of the things I am playing with is Sculptris. Probably most people have heard of that. I had fun and good luck yesterday creating a figure that I may get to print at some point.

Today, looking at something else entirely, I ran across a free, open source, browser-based, and possibly better tool of the same nature - SculptGL.


I have only known about it for a few minutes, but it's looking great. Check it out.

  Another Q3 domain dies
Posted by: Mooselake - 2018-02-14, 03:43 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (10)

The quintessentialuniversalbuildingdevice.com domain, last used for the ticketing system, has expired.  It's looking less likely that Q3 still exists.

We'll know for sure on 4/29/18 if q3dprinter.com, which is used for the online ordering site, disappears too

  OneUp V2 SIDEBRACE Redesign
Posted by: mr_intensity - 2018-02-09, 01:57 AM - Forum: Q3DPrinter (formerly QU-BD) Specific Discussion - No Replies

For those who have been reading my OneUp V2 Build Log, you will remember I did a post discussing a redesigned SIDEBRACE piece for the OneUp V2.

The SIDEBRACE piece, as designed by Q3D, is flawed.  In an attempt to remove "dead weight," the part is designed with a very narrow section that breaks.

My redesign is a little bulky, but makes for a much more durable part.

I am still not 100% positive on the end tab dimensions.  That may need tweaked once people start playing with it "out in the field."

[Image: attachment.php?aid=21]

The attached ZIP file contains four files: 1) A DXF file (CAD drawing file) that can be converted to GCODE for a laser cutter to laser cut the part out of wood or melamime.  Material thickness is believed to be 6 mm.  2) An OpenSCAD file, which imports/extrudes the DXF file to 6 mm for 3D printing of the part.  3) The STL file generated by OpenSCAD.  4) A README file with some information in it.

I am still trying to get my OneUp functional at the time of this writing, so I am not looking to tear it back down to replace the 3D-printed SIDEBRACE pieces (old design - see the rest of my build log for more details) I am currently using.  Maybe after I get up and running, I will print the redesigned piece for comparison to my one good (original) SIDEBRACE piece.

If you end up tweaking the redesign further, post your updates as a reply to this thread.  That way, we will have all the design changes in one place, making the latest-and-greatest version easy to find.

Check it out!

I've just noticed that our 'most online' count (the number of people using the site at the same time) jumped up 2 last night - there were 9 user browsing the site at the same time!

I know, I'm easily excited Smile.

But still, the site is showing a bit of growth, and that makes me happy. Especially since I haven't yet done some of the things I planned to improve the site and keep things interesting.

Well, I guess the next goal is 10 online at once. Onward and upward! Smile

Hello Everyone,

I purchased a Creality CR-10, and I think it's a great thing. I thought I'd open a special forum just for owners/users of these printers to share information. I'm aware that there is a facebook group that is popular, but I will never be on facebook - so, I decided to offer up this forum as an alternative.

Please join in and share your experiences and expertise.
